The film comes to Esseci – Flame Treaters
Terni’s company specialized in flame treatments hosted the filming of Elena Morolli’s short film in competition at the eleventh edition of the international film festival “popoli e religioni” of Terni (who won this year the Medal of the President of the Republic).
The movie, written by Federico Fratini and made in collaboration with Elena Quondam Lorenzo, was starring by company’s employees .
Made for the contest “il cielo sopra Terni” promoted by Terni Municipality under the candidacy of the city in the Italian capital of culture in 2017, in the film festival organized by the Institute of Theological Studies and historical-social with the support of the City, Diocese , Ministry of Culture, and the Italian Bishops’ Conference sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Culture.
The short – a spot lasting 40 seconds – opens with images of the working tools of the workers: helmet, shoes, gloves, then shows workers Esseci working. At the end, workers are granted a break from work to accommodate a wheelbarrow of culture. Happily gather around books. There are some that symbolically stand out among others: “I grandi fotografi” by Life, “Una vita violenta” by Pasolini and Picasso e Caravaggio monographs.
One way to combine the industrial core of the city with the cultural one, that the application to the Italian capital aims to raise.
